Ultra4 Racing created a new style of race last month at Miller Motorsports Park by combining short course and rock crawling. The result was a spectacular race full of high jumps, gnarly roll overs and intense racing.

The driving and the footage were so impressive that we asked Will Gentile of Heavy Metal Concepts to create a highlight video of the event that included coverage from the Dactyl Camera sponsored by Falken Tire which captured some amazing aerial shots of the action!

The following video combines never-before-seen footage, awesome driving, and great editing! We hope you enjoy the video and please share it on your web sites and social media sites!
